Mount St. Francis Retreat Centre

Mount St. Francis Retreat, located on the outskirts of Cochrane, Alberta and overlooking the Big Hill Creek Valley, is a Christian retreat centre. For those wishing time apart in intimacy with God, the Mount offers moments of silence within the hustle and bustle of modern life. St. Francis of Assisi continues to inspire the ecumenical ministry of the Retreat Centre that began in 1949. At Mount St. Francis we offer a variety of retreats to the many people who desire spiritual nourishment and prayerful direction. We proclaim God’s message of life in abundance and provide an atmosphere of welcome, quiet and peace where people on retreat can grow spiritually. We strive to minister to the people of Southern Alberta while maintaining the traditions of St. Francis for peace, creation, and serving the spiritual needs of our community.

Located on the shore of Sylvan Lake, we are a year-round camp and retreat centre. With comfortable dorms, spacious lounges, and delicious food, Kuriakos is a place set apart to be together.

We offer summer and retreat programs for kids, youth, adults, and families. Every day is filled with belonging, growth, and togetherness in a Christ-centered community. It doesn’t get any better!
